Recently described as an "old school trail, now defunct and dilapitaded," the SRAM Canadian Open Enduro presented by Specialized has brought this “Sleeping Beauty” back to life. Through the handiwork of Seb Kemp, Jerome David and Trail Network Solutions, Crazy Train has been refurbished, rerouted and will have riders “going off the rails.”

       Awesome Trail! Has a bit of everything definitely the most Gnarly Trail on Blackcomb but it still has decent Flow.

       Really fun, maybe a single black. Preferable over beaten up Microclimate

       Quite a bit harder than Hey Bud in my opinion, I’d say Hey bud also has a little better flow but both are still amazing trails

       I’d say this trail is a solid double black - not the hardest out there but it has some tricky spots. The slab is intimidating when conditions aren’t ideal (dusty) due to the large tree that is within striking distance of the runout.
